Harmonised Media
Oxoid and Remel, world leading microbiology brands, have introduced a complete portfolio of culture media for the microbiological examination of non-sterile pharmaceutical products, as recommended in the Harmonised Microbial Limit Tests chapters in the Ph. Eur, USP and JP1,2,3.
The fully validated portfolio (validation documents available on request) includes dehydrated culture media and prepared media for both microbial enumeration tests and specific micro-organism testing.
Our carefully sourced raw materials are fully traceable. Quality control is performed quantitatively and qualitatively, using the recommended strains and incubation/temperature parameters outlined in the harmonised MLT chapters of the Ph. Eur, USP and JP. Pharmaceutical companies can therefore have complete confidence in our portfolio.
Oxoid and Remel media are produced in specialised production facilities* in the UK, Germany, USA, Canada and Australia. These units utilise state-of-the-art equipment and carefully controlled environments to ensure consistent, high-quality products made to the latest international standards. On-site inspections and audits are welcome and can be arranged through Oxoid and Remel representatives.
The complete range of the specified ATCC® microbial strains recommended by the harmonised MLT chapters of the Ph. Eur, USP and JP for use in a number of quality control procedures including: performance testing and method validation; microbial limit tests; bioburden testing; bacteriostasis and fungistasis testing; and growth promotion testing are also available.
